eTV has refuted claims that Hungani Ndlovu has been fired from Scandal!, and has clarified that his temporary leave is due to his request to take some time off.
eTV issued a statement on Thursday, 19 November 2020, commenting on the temporary departure of Hungani Ndlovu, who assumes the role of Romeo Medupe on Scandal!. According to the channel, rumours have been circulating about him supposedly being fired due to his poor behaviour on set. Some viewers speculated that Romeo had been killed off to ensure that he would not be returning to the show at any point in the future.
eTV has confirmed that all of the rumours are inaccurate, and that Hungani requested temporary leave from the show. The channel stated, “The channel, together with Ochre Media, refute the claims made that Hungani was fired from the show for bad behaviour, nor had his character, Romeo been killed off. The factual reason for his temporary absence is that the actor requested to go on leave.”
Scandal! producers, Sanele Zulu, Grace Mahlaba, and Ilse van Hemert, also praised Hungani’s professionalism and work ethic, and assured the public that there are no ill feelings towards him whatsoever.
